  1. It will get you in the ballpark, but is not completely accurate, and it doesn't take into consideration displacement after subs or bracing, which will make your net volume go down and tuning go up. If you sign up for a site like Imgur or Photobucket, you can link the picture and it will show up here.

  4. I had a set of Lethal Injection 12's a few years back, but were ran in a smallish ported enclosure (3.6 cubes @ 37) - I listen to mostly rock/metal. Nothing bad to say about them. Just before I parted with them I put them on a BC3500 @ 1 ohm and they took it like a champ. But I vote GCon as well. Yes, a dual 1 ohm sub can be wired in series to present a 2 ohm final load to your amplifier.
  5. I understand that things are almost always "build, test, tear down, build, test; nothing works the same for everyone," but I'm wondering what others' experiences are with sub and port placement/alignment in a small Suv? 1) Would it be better to have the port rear firing into the hatch; or have the port firing up, parallel to and right up against the hatch? Assuming both enclosures take up the entire cargo area just under the window line and same external dimensions. Thinking that firing into the hatch would create more unwanted rattle, which could possibly hurt output(not to mention, sound like ass)? 2) Slot port running the width of the box, along the floor, vs a square or round port, centered? Why? 3) Would it make any noticable difference having the subs closer to the front or rear of the vehicle, in either port configuration in (1)? I would think they would load better closer to the rear hatch, granting more spl?
  6. 10" SSA Icon or XCon? I'm not biased or anything, but seriously, first subs to come to mind.
  7. After some listening with the SQ 7K(Love the amp - except for the LOUD fan), I think I've reached the limits of my current enclosure(small-medium tapered transmission line). While it hasn't gone up in SPL number wise, it sounds much better and smoother over the entire frequency range. Currently peaks at 144.5 between 41-43 and slowly tapers off above and below, I'll have to do a frequency response sweep before I pull everything out. I believe I'm close to hitting the thermal limits with this setup as well, as I've noticed faint coil smell at almost full tilt(dropping to no lower than 13.5v and no clip indicator light - though I know that's not accurate either). Debating on moving up to 4 15" XCon's in a C-Pillar wall.. Kind of want to do 6th, but may stick with a simple ported enclosure. I'll try to get everything measured tomorrow to see what kind of space I actually have. Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions, or anything I should be aware of before I start? Current ported idea:

    Welcome to the forum! I think it's to weed out bots, spammers, and to encourage participation.. My opinion.
  9. Not sure if you're referring to the meter or the phone, but to clarify.. the APM-2 meter itself does not have those issues, the phone you were looking at does.
  10. As an Android OS with bluetooth, it should work just fine. Definitely do some reading up on the phone though, seems like a large number of people have bluetooth/wifi/overheating/battery issues.
  11. I remember reading that way back when, I went scouring for that quote right before I bought my XCONs a year ago.. POOF! No trace.
  12. And welcome to the forum!
  13. I run XCON's and love them, but have not owned or heard ICONS. (I've owned DCONS as well though) From my understanding, you will not lose sound quality, but the XCON has a heavier bottom end and gobbles up power. For your application, if I were in your situation, I would probably go ICON - unless you were planning on upgrading in the near future, and wanted a sub that would grow with you.
  14. Thread necro. Check the timestamps. Double check and verify your sources before adding misleading information please, especially when it's derailing another topic.
  15. Damn! Following!
